Someone else's blog

There have been many days over the past year when, having nothing of my own to say, I just want to point over to Phil Ford and Jonathan Bellman at Dial M for Musicology and echo more or less everything they say. So here goes! Start with Phil’s post from September, I Really Should Be Practicing, and proceed from there.
“I have always been alive to the fundamental mystery of music, the way that it alone among the arts can reach into us and remap us according to its own design.” Go, go now. I really should be practicing.
